Annapurna Base Camp (also known as Annapurna Sanctuary or ABC) is  one of Nepal’s scenic and adventurous trekking routes. It is a deep glacier, which gives the effect of an amphitheater surrounded by a ring of impressive high peaks including Hun Chuli, Annapurna South, and Annapurna l, Ganggapurna, Annapurna III, and Machhapuchhre. The trail to this tremendous scene ascends the Annapurna foothills through forested hillsides, where we are given a taste of Nepal’s magical and majestic vistas with a spectacular sunrise over the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri.

From the terraced rice fields above Pokhara, we walk along good trails through picturesque Gurung villages and one of Nepal’s biggest rhododendron forests which, in spring, bursts with many different hues. This 15 days trek is a perfect introduction to Nepal’s mountain treasures. It is a good starter trek for those not sure of their walking ability, or simply for those who wish to make the most of only a few days. The trek finishes at the magnificent lake town of Pokhara, where you can relax and enjoy the tranquility of the lake and its backdrop of snow-capped mountains.

Mt. Annapurna, the 10th highest mountain in the world, is at the altitude of 8,091 m (26,545 ft).  It is located east of a great gorge cut through the Himalayas by the Kali Gandaki River, which separates it from the Dhaulagiri massif which lies 34 km west of Annapurna I.  The Range of Annapurna holds huge glaciers on its slopes. Mt. Annapurna I is the main peak of this chain of mountains which includes four other peaks that share its name: Annapurna II (7937 m), Annapurna III (7555 m), Annapurna IV (7525 m), and Annapurna South (7219 m).  Annapurna is a Sanskrit name that means "Full of Grains'' and is normally translated as “Goddess of the Harvests” or more simply ‘The Provider’. In Hinduism, Annapurna is regarded as “the universal and timeless kitchen-goddess, the mother who feeds”. It was first submitted by a French expedition led by Maurice Herzog and Louis Lachenal on 3rd June 1950 and the first Nepali climber to summit this peak was Sonam Wolang Sherpa on 13th October 1977.

Day 01. Arrival In Kathmandu 1350m: 

On the day of your arrival, we will be there to pick you up from the airport and check you into your hotel. After that, you can take a rest as you will probably be tired because of a long flight. If you arrive early, after taking some rest you can walk around the places near your hotel and freshen up or do some last-minute shopping for things that you will need or buy souvenirs. 

Day 02. Full-day Kathmandu (Preparation and Site seeing):

On the second day, we will rise early and have breakfast as well as the tour guide will brief you on your travel plans. Then we will begin our journey, we will first go to Swayambhu MahaChaitya. We will arrange all the required travel permits before we head to explore Patan Darwar square.

Day 03. Kathmandu to Pokhara 950m:

After breakfast, we will travel to Pokhara (either by tourist bus, by air, or by private vehicle). At Pokhara, we walk around the lakeside and make final preparations. Depending on arrival time the activities may vary. 

Day 04. Pokhara to Jhinu Dada 1780:

Early morning rise and breakfast at Pokhara, and explore different places around Pokhara such as Phewa Lake, Peace Stupa, Devi’s Fall, and other places. Then we will have lunch back at the hotel, then we will travel to Jhinu Dada which is 2-3 hours. 

Day 05. Jhinu to Dovan 2600m:

After we reach Jhinu Dada we will begin our trek for the day. We will have lunch at Chomrong and our final destination will be Dovan. 

Day 06.Dovan to MBC 3700m:

Once you've passed the Himalaya Hotel, keep going up the confined valley to Deurali. Enter a wide valley close to Machhapuchhre Base Camp while remaining on the west bank of the Modi River. It will take roughly 6 hours to complete the 9 kilometers of today's walk.

Day 07. MBC TO ABC 4130m:

The highest point of your trek, Annapurna Base Camp, is further upwards from Machhapuchhre Base Camp. You can choose how well your lungs and legs are doing. You can spend the night at either Annapurna Base Camp or Machhapuchhre Base Camp. The views are breathtaking from both base camps, making the effort to get here worthwhile.

Day 08. ABC  to Chhomrong.

The Base Camp dawn is spectacular, so get up early! The peaks of Annapurna 1, Macchapucchre, Annapurna South, Tent Peak, Gangapurna, Himchuli, and Annapurna 3 are virtually within reach of you at this point. Return to Ghhomrong by taking the same route back down the valley after seeing the sunrise on these snowy peaks (or further if the knees can handle it). Despite the lengthy day, you have plenty of time to travel.

Day 9. Chhomrong to Pokhara.

From Chhomrong, you will now travel to Pokhara, where you will have lunch at Jhinu and reach Pokhara around the evening or late afternoon. In Pokhara, you can relax in the hotel, freshen up and explore the lakeside during the evening. And then have dinner back at the hotel.
